Have You Seen the Latest Deer Hunting Load for 2018?
As one of six hunters, I was recently honored to be among the first to hunt deer with the new Winchester Deer Season XP Copper Impact load.
Excitement doesn’t even describe it.
First of all, the opportunity to test the new round was incredible on its own. Throw in the added perk of chasing big-bodied Midwestern whitetails and it was just too much to pass up. I packed everything up and headed for deer camp.
It's important to establish that this new load is certainly deer-ready. The engineers who worked on it, definitely got it right. It flies true. It hits hard. It brings deer down fast. Deer Season XP was already a great option for deer hunting. It wasn’t that it needed improving. But that’s exactly what Winchester decided to do — take an already incredible load and perfect it. Here's what we think about it.
Whitetails make the hunting world go round. Josh Honeycutt, deer hunting editor and "Brow Tines and Backstrap" blogger, knows a fair bit about killing mature deer. He was raised up hunting the river bottoms of Kentucky. And he still hunts there—among other places—to this day.
Follow along as he shares his adventures, experiences and knowledge of the white-tailed deer.
